The MWAH prospect countdown marches on with this year's catching prospect du jour.  Maybe this one will actually work out. Zach Wright Position: C  Highest Level: Low-A Bats: Right Throws: Right  Height: 6'1" Weight: 205 lbs. Age: 23  Born: 1/10/90 2012 Season Stats Low-A: 214 PA, .268 AVG, .385 OBP, .419 SLG, 7 2B, 1 3B, 6 HR, 23 RBI, 38 SO, 1 SB, 2 CS, .319 BABIP Contact – C+.  Wright’s ability to make contact was slightly below average throughout college.  However, like all good prospects, he showed the ability to develop this particular skill, and his strikeouts came under control during his senior year.  This trend continued in his stint in A-Ball (he skipped Rookie Ball after being drafted).  He’ll probably swing and miss more as he progresses through the system, but he gets a slightly above average grade because of his ability to make adjustments.      Power – B.  This is what attracted so many teams to Wright.  Power hitting catchers are a rarity
